The Red Wings look to move one game from the Cup while the Penguins are trying to stay alive coming back to Pittsburgh where they're unbeaten in the playoffs.

There don't appear to be any lineup changes coming out of Game Two but it's still early.

Television reminder: Tonight's game will be on NBC, as will the remainder of the series.

Lineup change for Pittsburgh: Darryl Sydor comes in on the blue line. No reports on who's coming out to make room for him yet. He's been a healthy scratch throughout the playoffs.

Also on CBC for those who get it, which I'll be watching because I'd rather hear Don Cherry praise the Wings in the first intermission then listen to the stupid NBC commentators [which I sometimes question if they know they're covering hockey?] that never praise the Wings :therock:

The Pens have started well. Hardly any shots for the Wings.

Power play looked good except for not scoring. Gotta get going with the extra attacker, can't waste those opportunities.

Penguins looked a lot better at the end of the period there. Wings look a little bit like they're biding their time. Not good, gotta keep the pressure up.

And home ice advantage rears it's ugly head.

Two goals in the whole series and McGuire claims the Penguins skill guys are back.

Damnit.

Wings have gotta get off their f*cking heels, they're looking nervous out there, making bad passes.

Orpik drives Hudler into the net, knocks it off, no call?

Wings looked a lot better in the second but still not good enough. I think they're turning it around though, we'll see in the third.

That's what I was saying.
That was ridiculous. Would have been a goal if they didn't do that--Penalty shot?

They simply had to score in that period, otherwise it would have been too much. I'm not sure that mentally the Pens could cope if the Wings tied the game.
